EXHIBITION TEXT

Solo Exhibition

17.10.15 – 28.11.15

Cape Town

Deadly Sinners is a new series of eleven bronze sculptures triggered by Anne Applebaum’s Pulitzer Prize winning book Gulag: A History (2003), which explores the history of the labour camps in Siberia where millions of people were forcefully shipped during World War II. Imagining the terrifying train journeys to the frozen wastelands, Brown wondered what the train drivers were thinking, and so the first Sinner, The Engine Driver was born. The other ten “followed easily”.

The exhibition will run until 28 November 2015. For more information or a portfolio of the Deadly Sinners please contact the gallery in Cape Town.
